WILLIAMSBURG,WV (WOAY)– Flames began to spark early Thursday morning leaving a house crumbling to the ground due to an electric heater.
Roger Williams, who son owned the house and had been renting it out to a family, shared what he witnessed.
“There were flames shooting in the air from my house where I could see it. I knew it was my son’s house and I went up to the house. The only thing that was left in the house that they can’t find so far is a little black dog,” said Roger Williams.
